The Houston Texans came into the 2015 season with a lot of promise, but failed to live up to expectations as they are currently sitting with a 6-6 record but can still win a division title as the AFC South is one of the weaker divisions in the NFL. One of their biggest weapons is reigning Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt. One of the most feared lineman in the NFL, he is on pace for another DPOY trophy as he is the league leader with 13.5 sacks, 59 combined tackles, a forced fumble and five passes defend through 12 games.

The teams season may be in jeopardy as it has been revealed that Watt broke his hand yesterday (December 9) during practice. He skipped Thursday’s practice but showed up with a cast on his left hand and wrist during a press conference and shared that he intends on playing in Sunday’s matchup against the New England Patriots. Defensive coordinator Romeo Cremel believes that Watt will have to change his playing style to a degree considering that he will have the cast on during play.

Watt is third among active defensive end’s with consecutive starts and it looks that streak will carry out to the end of the regular season. The tough as nails DE won’t let a little old broken hand stop him.
